There we are, Teddy. Oh, that's lovely! What was that?
You'd like some more sparkles in the house? Really? Hello, I'm Floella.
But Teddy, I think there are plenty of sparkles around in the house
already, don't you?
You know, Teddy, you remind me of tonight's bedtime story,
where there's a very demanding princess who never takes
no for an answer!
The story is by Tracey Corderoy and Kate Leake,
and it's called Never Say No to a Princess!
The Little Princess wore a big, sparkly tiara.
She slept in a big, sparkly bed.
Her big, sparkly wardrobe was bursting with sparkly dresses,
and her toybox was filled with sparkly toys.
You see, the Little Princess got everything she wanted.
But nothing ever seemed to make her smile.
"Ice cream!" she shouted. "I want ice cream NOW!
"And it better be good or else I'll cry!"
"Quick!" said her daddy, who was busy being King.
"Or else she'll cry!"
"Ponies!" bellowed the Little Princess. "I want ponies NOW!"
"Quick!" said her mummy, who was busy being Queen.
"Or else she'll cry!"
So pony after pony was led from the royal stables.
But the Little Princess simply shook her head. "Too frisky! Too twinkly!
"Yuck! Too sweet!" she cried.
"And that one doing ballet is a show-off!"
Then one morning, at breakfast time, a big, green dragon flew by.
"Dragon!" yelled the Little Princess.
"I want that dragon NOW! Get it!
"Catch it! Now, now, now! Or else I'll cry!"
"Quick!" said the royal servants. "Or else she'll cry!"
"Swish, swish, swish!" went the royal nets,
but the dragon just wouldn't be caught.
So the Little Princess tossed back her head, took a deep breath
By lunchtime, a river of twinkling tears gushed through the big,
By teatime, it was an ocean. By bedtime, the palace went...
went the gurgling water as it swept the Little Princess far,
far away from home.
She found herself all alone in a gloomy wood. Her tiara was bent.
Her dress was torn. She'd never been less sparkly.
"I want my mummy and daddy!" sniffed the Little Princess.
Just then, she heard a "Swoosh!" in the dark night sky.
The air above her head grew warm.
And there, swooping down through the twinkly stars was the dragon!
"Dragon!" bellowed the Little Princess.
"Take me to my mummy and daddy!" The dragon raised an eyebrow.
"What's the magic word?" The Little Princess thought for a moment.
"Oh, yes!" she cried. "Take me to my mummy and daddy...
"That's not the magic word," said the dragon.
"Right!" said the Little Princess. "I'm going to cry!" And she did.
The dragon dried her tears with one blast of hot air from his nose.
Then he swished off into the cave and shut the door.
The Little Princess was puzzled. Crying usually worked a treat.
She wondered what the magic word could be.
Then she remembered a word she'd heard a long time ago.
She tiptoed up to the dragon's cave and tapped on the door.
"Will you t-t-take me to my m-m-mummy and d-d-daddy...
"..please?" shivered the Little Princess.
"Certainly!" smiled the dragon.
"But first, we need to get you warm and dry."
The dragon lit a roaring fire,
and they huddled in the orange glow until the princess felt much better.
"Time to go home," said the dragon.
"Yes, please," said the Little Princess.
So back they flew, through the starry night.
When the Little Princess awoke, the dragon was gone!
But her mummy and daddy were SO pleased to see her.
"Oh, oh! But darling!" gasped the Queen.
"We don't have any sparkly things for you!"
The royal footman coughed politely and handed her a catalogue.
"Your Majesty's favourite, Sparkly Things for Princesses."
"What would you like?" beamed the King.
"I'd like to invite a friend to play, please,"
said the Little Princess.
"A friend?" said the King. "A friend?" said the Queen.
"But there aren't any other Little Princesses for miles around."
"This is a special friend," said the Little Princess.
She wrote an invitation in her very best handwriting,
and the royal servant set off to deliver it.
The Little Princess's special friend wasn't quite what the King
and Queen were expecting.
His table manners left a LOT to be desired!
But as they ate their sparkly tea, the King noticed something strange.
"Do you think," he said to the Queen,
"our Little Princess looks different?"
The Queen peered through the royal binoculars.
"Heavens!" she gasped. "You're right!
"Is she? No!"
"Yes!" cried the King. "She is!
And the Little Princess kept smiling all day long.
That story was called Never Say No to a Princess!
So you see, Teddy, sometimes,
all you need is a friend to make you happy.
And didn't the princess look pretty when she smiled?
Come on! Give us a smile, Teddy!
Well, I hope that story made YOU smile, too.
And now, it's time to go to bed.
And I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.
Night-night! Sweet dreams!
